Bill Clinton has always been able to shake the scandals that continually popped up.
But Clinton’s luck has finally run out.
His career is finally over and it’s all because of his sex scandals.
Democrats are gearing up to try and win back Congress this November.
Normally that plan would call for a heavy dose of Bill Clinton on the campaign trail.
The Democrat Party would deploy Clinton in working class and rural areas to try and win back voters who drifted away from the party.
And the former President was always a major fundraising draw.
The 2016 election and the #MeToo movement exposed a new generation of liberal activists against Clinton’s mistreatment of women and now he is radioactive in Democrat politics.
Democrats who won races in Alabama and Virginia both rejected the idea of holding public events with Bill Clinton.
That is an unheard of development.
The New York Times reports:
“Mrs. Clinton’s husband appears far less welcome on the trail, with his unpopularity among Republicans compounded by new skepticism on the left about his treatment of women and allegations of sexual assault.
Mr. Clinton is said to remain passionately angry about the 2016 election — more so than his wife — raising concerns that he could go wildly off message in campaign settings, several people who have spoken with Mr. Clinton said.
Democrats have been keeping their distance: During the special election for Senate in Alabama in December, Doug Jones, the Democrat who won the race, considered enlisting Mr. Clinton’s help before abandoning the idea as too risky.
When Mr. Clinton offered to campaign for Ralph Northam, now the governor of Virginia, Mr. Northam’s camp responded cautiously. Rather than headlining a public event, Mr. Clinton was urged to attend a fund-raiser already scheduled in the Washington area — a suggestion that offended the former president, according to people briefed on the awkward exchange. The Northam and Clinton camps discussed a church visit in October but failed to agree on a date.”
After years of dodging accountability, Bill Clinton may finally be paying the price for the allegations of rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment that have followed him throughout his career.
Clinton may not be paying a legal price.
But politics is his life’s blood.
And he is being forced to give up his passion.
